YKHC COVID-19 Response

Reported illnesses have ranged from mild symptoms to severe illness and death for confirmed coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) cases. Adults 65 and older and those with underlying medical conditions like heart disease, diabetes and lung disease are more likely to develop serious illness.

Stay at Home

To reduce the spread of COVID-19, the State of Alaska has ordered all Alaskans to remain in their homes except for essential activities. This mandate also requires closure of non-essential businesses and prohibits any gatherings that include non-household members. The State of Alaska prepared this FAQ to explain these new requirements.


Watch for fever, cough and shortness of breath.
